I have NEVER said that giving 1 star ratings was wrong. I challenged H finn,s review because I thought that he was totally illinformed. I suggested that going barefoot m ight start him thinking about the disgraceful, disgusting state of the shoe industry. Yes, I gave a 1 star rating to your film and yes some people like it. I was hoping that you would try to justify your PROPAGANDA

Hokay, you had me going right up until this. I thought you were a REAL nut. You're just pretendin', and I'm big enough to admit you got me!

Thank you for understanding my original post. I should have given more information and written a better statement. The film shows how manufacturing was done in the right way, many years ago by free workers in a demoracracy.. Now today, shoes , clothing, toys and so on are imported and made by poorly paid workers with few political rights (often living in dictatorships) Corporations prosper and democracy suffers. Thanks, again.

Actually I thought of my film as a parody, as defined here:

par·o·dy  n. pl. par·o·dies
1. a. A literary or artistic work that imitates the characteristic style of an author or a work for comic effect or ridicule.
b. The genre of literature comprising such works.

2. Something so bad as to be equivalent to intentional mockery; a travesty: The trial was a parody of justice.

3. The practice of reworking an already established composition, especially the incorporation of material borrowed from other works.

Anyone who would take my little movie seriously as some kind of doctrine has much bigger problems than pornography...

Anyway, I hope we can disagree without any hard feelings. I really don't mean to offend.

I always pictured Huck Finn as being barefoot anyway...

"Huck was sitting on the gunwale of a flatboat, listlessly dangling his feet in the water and looking very melancholy." -- Mark Twain, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

Really wouldn't do to have his shoes on in that scene, would it?

HIS propaganda??

(Or should I say his PROPAGANDA?)

Once again, you've floored me Jack, to what the hey you're talking about, how is Trafalgar's film propaganda? Do you know what even you're talking about?

PS, Still trying to find anyone who also says that Harry Langdon is often ranked as a great comedian, equally with Chaplin and Buster Keaton.

PPS Have you managed to find a software program that will let you tint the sky blue in your movies (you know, like you say that they did in the silent days and could not do with sound film).. Didn't know they had the software to do that in the silent days...

to POTSIE2 If you want info on Harry Langdon, just read a book on silent film history and then correct any errors by me. If you go to a movie rental store or search on internet (amazon ,etc)you will find that many silent movie DVD,s are stated to be TINTED
